To Travel like an Architect you have to have a plan – blueprint your vacation. After you book, you can do it yourself or get help from a travel professional. There are different ways to go about it, depending on your learning style and preference. Here are some of the ways we do research about destinations […]
To “Travel Like an Architect™,” you will have to (indeed WANT to) work on your vacation! WAIT! DO NOT PANIC!
One reason you will WANT to work on your vacation is a LITTLE work makes for a MUCH longer vacation. Plus, you will find sitting on your balcony, cruising the ocean, and FREE room service makes two to four hours of work just FLOAT ON by.
Cruising allows an employee or business owner to maintain contact with “the home office.” If you own a business, you understand how difficult it is to be isolated from the daily operations. If you are an employee, you might find your boss is quite willing to let you vacation longer when you make yourself VERY available.
We LOVE cruising because it accommodates being away from work so well. We can visit foreign countries and out-of-the-way places and still remain “connected.” For example: We had cell service and Internet the ENTIRE length of the Amazon River! When we started cruising, we relied ENTIRELY on the ship’s connection to the world. Cruise ships have/own a cell tower ON the boat, as well as satellite Internet. You do have to purchase this in addition to the cruise, and we purchase in a package to get a better deal. Because your “tower” travels with you, cell and Internet service are available even in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean! This also means that MANY carriers have FREE texting.
More recently, we have found FREE Internet while on land. MANY port facilities offer free connections within the terminal buildings. AND, you will frequently find us in social media at the “bar of the day,” because you can ALWAYS get the WiFi (pronounced wiffe) code in exchange for a delicious libation.
Try it! A little work and a LOT of vacation equals “Traveling Like an Architect”!

Food is everywhere on a cruise, all the time. The choices are endless. If you are to avoid gaining that extra 10 pounds that you just trimmed off in preparation of your trip you will need a plan and an associated personal commitment. Where most people fail is going on a cruise with an open […]
You will make new friends — passengers, cruise line employees and people in exotic countries. Meeting people on the ship who love to cruise is easy, just eat in the dining room or pick a favorite bar. Recently we met The Merry Widows in the piano bar, two fun loving ladies from England who were, […]
Since we are also Architects – we are always interested in construction projects! This one really caught our attention for the cultural connection it will offer us with our friends in Mexico! Soon our Mexican friends will be able to cruise from their home country to ports in Mexico and elsewhere without first coming to the […]
Over the weekend we did a local bridal show at Pearl Bistro. I never realized until we did all the set up preparation what a perfect honeymoon a cruise makes. I should have because we did a cruise for our honeymoon many years ago, a perfect romantic getaway. I still have a picture on my […]
In March Rob and I attended a business seminar “Smart Success” in Orange County California. The seminar was held on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. We flew all the way from Chicago to LA – for 3 days? Really? > > NOT – – we wouldn’t do that. Would you? Flying all the way to LA is […]

RePositioning Cruises are in my opinion, one of the Best Kept Secrets in the Industry! Travel Agents are always asking you “Where do you want to go?” My answer is “Anywhere I haven’t yet been” Until recently you even had to book a round trip flight to your destination. A Re-Positioning Cruise is one that […]
Saturday morning our ship arrived at the beautiful Puerto Chiapas. While primarily an industrial shipping facility, there is a beautiful terminal for pleasure. We debarked (fancy word for “got off the boat”) a little after 8am after eating a hearty shipboard breakfast. We were met outside the terminal by organized, English-speaking, officials who arranged […]
